Brodie Lee On Why He Left WWE

AEW star Brodie Lee was recently the guest on Busted Open Radio. During the issue Lee discussed why he left WWE.

“That’s the main reason why I didn’t want to be in WWE anymore, it’s because I knew those opportunities weren’t coming. No matter how hard I scratched and clawed, no matter what I proved, they weren’t coming. I wasn’t one of the chosen ones. Now here I am, I’m proving it myself. But now, it’s like I know I’m great at professional wrestling. I know I deserve these spots, but now I have to show up and prove that to other people. So now there’s a certain pressure on me because there is no one to blame anymore.”

“So now here I am in these spots, I’m in the main event last night, I’m in the main event next Saturday, and the pressure is there because now I have to prove it, but I know deep down I can prove it. I know deep down that I belong there, and it’s a wonderful, very freeing feeling to be in that spot.”
